Cooking Demo: Meet me at the Market, June 5th 2010

Cooking Demo at the Market: June 5 2010

I’m doing a grilling demonstration at the Howe Meadow farmers market in the Cuyahoga Valley next Saturday, June 5th, from 9:00 AM to Noon. If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello!

I’m a big fan of the farmers market in the Cuyahoga Valley – I’ve been dragging my family there on Saturday mornings since Ben (my 9 year old) was small enough to fit in a Baby Bjorn. I asked if they had any openings for cooking demos.  Beth Knorr, who runs the market said “sure – when are you available?”
*I’m excited, and nervous, and it’s still a week away. 

My theme is “Grilling the Farmers Market”.  I will be cooking rotisserie chicken (from Brunty Farms), butterflied leg of lamb (from Great American Lamb), asparagus (hopefully, if it’s still available next week), grilled garlic toast, and a few other vegetables (I won’t know what is available until I get there…part of the fun of a farmer’s market!)

If you can’t make it Saturday, I will be doing another demo at the Stan Hywett farmers market on Thursday, June 24th from 4:00 to 7:00 PM.

I hope to see you there!

  1. Mike, that’s great news. I will definitely plan on stopping by to check out the demo next Saturday while I am at the market. Are you planning on cooking for the entire 3 hours?

  2. @Tino:

    Great! I’ll see you there.

    I hope to be cooking for the entire three hours. I plan to cook in two waves, making the same recipes twice, once starting around 9, the second starting around 10:30. I can’t wait to see what vegetables will be available for me to work with – I’m crossing my fingers that there will be something that I can grill easily, like asparagus…
